Part #1 New CD, Daily Giveaways, New Scraps & Free Printable!

Hi Everyone!
NOTE: I maxed out my space so this is Part #1, so I will post Part 2 next.

It's been ages since my last post and I have all sorts of goodies to show you.
Today is about the CD and tomorrow I will show our new Mini Creative Scraps - and a new product each day this week!  Every day I will announce a WINNER for our New CD and add extra gifts - so leave a comment eac day to enter! 

First, HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the DAD'S out there! I made a card for my father yesterday and decided to include this old fishing label as a printable but ran into problems with Blogger, so it super late. You likely already have a card but this would make a cute place card or cake topper. We are taking my dad for his favorite - Fish & Chips. Later our 3 daughters are treating Scott to dinner and I get to tag along. 
Note: Our free vintage printables are for personal use only. Double click the label with the right side of your mouse a couple of times, so it gets bigger, then click it with the left side of your mouse to save it to a picture file
Everyone has been waiting for more of our new CD's to arrive (we sold out in Texas) and they are finally here!  Here it is: Creating with Vintage Patterns! They sell for $15.99 I apologize we don't have any info on our website on the CD!  We are trying to find a new webmaster, so if you know a great one - please email me. The CD comes in an envelope attached inside this double sided card.


You can click on the covers a couple of times to see them larger.  The CD includes ready to print papers and embellishments in jpg and PNG files for Windows or Mac.  I think our graphic designer Cindy van Koll deserves a huge round of applause for creating all the papers! We lived, ate and breathed paper designs for months and she doesn't even like making paper!


  I so very grateful to have been able to have digital expert and author Patty Debowski from    www.TheDigitalScrapbookTeacher.com  write a great tutorial included on the CD that has great digital tips, plus - step by step instructions on how she created this layout with her parents wedding photo using only papers and embellishments on the CD.


Note - Digi usser's there are 173 items and all the jpegs are tagged for easy organizing


Okay - look what is included on this CD!
I've included the copyright info at the end. I was going to make the CD for personal use only but there are so many ladies with little part time businesses selling hand made cards and crafts, I've decided to offer a limited license for $15.95.  I will be posting full details shortly.





These PNG files below are transparent so they can be layered and you can change the colors using digital software like Photoshop Elements. Non Digital users can simply print the patterns on any color paper or cardstock to suit their theme. For those of you that have been following the progress, I was originally just going to include B&W papers but once we go going - that changed!

You can see one of the black PNG damask designs printed on different colors of cardstock below. Printed on red would make a great Christmas paper.


I wanted to include some templates which you can print on the back of any papers or cardstock. There is a 3D envelope. A library card and folding tag, 2 gift boxes and a Tussie Mussie Treat Container.  There will be some really fun templates on the next CD, Creating with Vintage Illustrations. We just need to take a 'CD break' to finish our 15 new Clear Art Stamp Sets!



Yikes - the rest of my post disapeared! I think I had too many photos listed, so I will be back today and repost the rest of it. 

Don't forget to leave a comment as I will draw a winner every day this week for our new CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns, plus - include a new item!

Wishing you joy & creativity

I received a wide format printer for my birthday this past January. It came with Adobe Photoshop but I've been too intimidated to try it out.

Now that you have this fantastic new CD with paper and patterns, I will have to get out of my comfort zone and try my hand at digi scrapping.
